The Boating Industries Alliance Australia was launched in February 2011 to represent the boating industry in Australia to all stakeholders with the potential to impact the sector. As the principal advocate for the boating industry, BIAA is the national focus for relationships with state and federal governments, user groups, other marine industry bodies, associated industry sectors, international agencies and standards and regulatory organisations. BIAA works in partnership with a number of stakeholders to strengthen the message of the boating industry and related stakeholders, including boating and fishing associations.
